Reduce Your Stress and Anxiety

with Samantha Clarke

About This Class

Want to make a change in your workplace and grow together? Well, we want to help!
This class is great for teams looking to prioritize mental well-being and build emotional resilience. 

The physical and social contexts of how we work have rapidly been disrupted over the last two years, causing relentless uncertainty and volatility. With continued changes in the workplace environment, it is imperative as a manager or leader that you supercharge your resilience level and increase your ability to bounce back from adversity with ease. By adapting to change, you can avoid burnout and model this advantageous behavior for your employees too. Building your emotional and mental resilience can mean managing the emotions that you yourself experience or that of those around you. When you build stronger emotional resilience and gain the ability to minimize stress and anxiety, it enables you to increase productivity, improve morale, enhance relationships with your team and boost company culture to retain top talent.

Together we will: 

  • Recognize stress and anxiety—the science, impact, types, symptoms, and causes
  • Explore the importance of emotional resilience at work for yourself and others
  • Identify the unique stories you tell yourself about your stress and anxiety and the effect they have on your work and life
  • Discover how you can reframe your anxiety and use Samantha’s framework to develop your own personal resilience and stress management strategies
  • Build your confidence to deal with challenges both now and in the future

Pretty great actually—thanks so much for asking! We hope you’re having a great day as well.

All class times are listed in US Eastern Standard Time. We are working to add more time slots that are time-zone friendly globally.

While we wish we could clone Simon, science just isn’t quite there yet. That is why we’ve trained our Optimist Instructors to teach our classes. However, our two on-demand courses are taught by Simon – check out Find Your WHY and The Art of Presenting!

When it’s time for class, you can log in here and click on your class under My Live Online Classes. You should receive reminder emails the day before class and again two hours before. Please check your spam folder if you don’t see those reminders in your inbox. We can’t wait to have you join us!

Don’t worry, we’ve got you!

We are always looking to add more class options to accommodate our global audience. We hope to have some great options for you soon. In the meantime, Simon’s books have been translated into multiple languages and can be ordered online.

We totally understand that schedules can change at the last minute. An unedited recording is available for 48 hours after class ends for all classes except for our WHY series.

We’re glad you asked! Our 60- and 90-minute classes offer: more detail, more connection with your fellow attendees, more activities, and more interaction with our instructors. The 25-minute classes are more lecture-style. They feature more information-per-minute, but the shorter timeframe also means fewer opportunities for active participation.

We know you’re busy and, if you can’t easily spare 60 minutes, we don’t want to deprive you of an opportunity to grow!

Yes! Buy any three of our 25-minute classes in one purchase and you’ll get the third class for half-price. This means that if you purchase a bundle of three 25-minute classes, it will cost $100 instead of the full $120. The $20 discount will be applied to your cart automatically during checkout. If you buy three 25-minute classes in separate transactions, you’ll pay the full price for all classes. 

Yes, we have team options! We love that you are looking to take care of those around you. Your team can join a public class, and you’ll receive a team discount at checkout when you register 10+ team members.  

If you want a private class just for your team, on a date and time that works for you, then visit our private class page and our team will be excited to help you. 

 Our team is more than happy to assist you; just contact us here and we’ll get back to you ASAP.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
